1987

After the success of previous single ‘Michelle’, 1987, AKA Sweden’s Victor Holmberg, has dropped the hood and offered up ‘Bomb’, arguably his boldest effort to date.

On ‘Bomb’ we find elements which are unmistakably like his previous work – the core of the song is melancholic pop delivered by a strong vocal, but where ‘Michelle’ was glazed in nostalgia and sunset warmth, ‘Bomb’ has a harder energy – strong synth melodies and addictive beats make it better suited for a night out than an afternoon gazing out of the window. With the perfect combination of high energy and dark undertones, ‘Bomb’ looks set to keep us going through the winter until a full LP release in 2015.
